At this time, adoptions for the 2020 Angel Tree program are closed. We always have Angels that are sadly "forgotten," or their gift bags are not returned for distribution. You can still provide the joy of Christmas to these Angels by donating supplemental items to the Angel Tree program. These items can be dropped off at The Salvation Army Fountain Square Corps or Eagle Creek Corps Community Centers. Items that are most needed include:
When adopting an Angel, you should expect to spend about $50 on at least four gifts: something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read. In addition to these four main items, we recommend adding 2-3 stocking stuffers for each Angel you adopt. To adopt an Angel, follow the steps below.

Much of the support for Angel Tree comes from local businesses and organizations that are looking for ways to give back to people in their community. Whether you want to adopt a group of Angels or volunteer at our distribution event, this support makes Angel Tree possible. If you're interested in getting involved, please contact our Angel Tree Coordinator, Caitlin Wuethrich, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every Christmas there are children who go without because their families are struggling financially. The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program has been running for more than 30 years to ensure that these children and their families can still have a joyful holiday season. The Salvation Army of Central Indiana has been providing Christmas assistance to our community for generations.
We were proud to introduce the Angel Tree program to our area in 2015. Many children in our community return to school after the holidays in worn-out uniforms, insufficient winter clothing, or without necessary school supplies.
Angel Tree is a traditional Salvation Army program designed to enable community members to personally provide these vital items to specific children in need. Please contact us at INDangeltree@usc.salvationarmy.org with any questions you have about Angel Tree.
Angel Tree is different from other holiday assistance programs because a sponsor is able to feel a special connection with his/her “adopted” child.
The sponsor receives the child’s first name and a personalized list of needs and wishes for their child. Other holiday assistance programs host generic toy drives or give sponsors minimal information about what would be an ideal gift for the child they’ll be giving to.
With Angel Tree, the wish list given to the sponsor is thoughtfully prepared by the child’s parents, so the sponsor knows that they’ll be buying something the child both needs and will be excited to open on Christmas morning.
As you can imagine, it takes hundreds of volunteer hours to make Angel Tree happen. From sorting bags to helping families on distribution day, volunteers are essential to a successful Angel Tree program.
